Celebrities are fairly good at convincing people to buy things they don't need.

Kim Kardashian's dress up mobile game pulls in over $200 million a year (well, when that article was made anyway).


My favorite movie is:

The secret world of arrietty

I would HIGHLY recommend it


Just watched Fight Club earlier. Been wanting to read the book as well but my local stores didn't have it in stock


Thread needs more Heavy Metal (1981).


Saw Logan and Beauty and the Beast on Sunday. Expected to cry on one of them.

Didn't think I would at both.

You always need to cry at one movie. Granted I shead many tears at Terminator 2...

NO NEVER


A couple of newer ones for me:

1. Rogue One - A Star Wars Story
2. X-Men: Days of Future Past - The Rogue Edition


saw Independence Day: Resurgence the other day and it's pretty good.

well, the people got their female president in this movie and...shes the type to shoot first ask questions later. yeah, sorry about that, soon to be ally. our new president seems to have a case of "itchy trigger finger". oops same for most of her advisory council. >.> (geez, people... heres hoping you learn how to identify friends from foes BEFORE testing your shiny new toy on whoever happens to cross your path first in the 3rd movie.)

still, overall it was pretty well done. it picks up 20 years after the 1st movie and shows how the battle against the aliens is now escalating (can you get much bigger than a 1k mile in diameter mother ship?) and without spoiling anything the ending looks like there might be a 3rd movie in the future. anyone up for a intergalactic war against the aliens?

good movie overall.


Watched Goodfellas earlier today. Dope shit.


Wizards 1977 - Full

this popped up in my "up next" side bar. figured i'd take a look and so far it's not bad. totally unlike any movie you'd see nowadays.

this movie seems to rely on a combination of short animated scenes and still images with narration. i don't know if i've ever seen that kind of movie before this.

edit: nazis... lol ok...

24:30 scratch that. looks like it was just a video recording used to shock enemy. that's all.

hmmm... got some other interesting sounding movies in the side bar now. think i'll copy some of those titles for later.


My appreciation for film has been increasing over the years. I've grown a fondness for the Coen Brothers, Ridley Scott, Hayao Miyazaki, Steven Spielberg, and Stanley Kubrick. My discovery of the Criterion Collection was also a mind-opener, exposing me to Akira Kurosawa, Wim Wenders, Ingmar Bergman, and David Lynch.


Anyone else saw the new alien movie? It was alright


Saw I, Daniel Blake, "[w]inner of the Palme d'Or at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival, the latest from legendary director Ken Loach..." It was fine. I had no complaints. It's a window into poverty before homelessness.

Actual spoilers: When I asked myself why he had to die as opposed to a different story being told, I arrived at the conclusion that "he died so that maybe a real person in his situation wouldn't have to", like a fictional martyr for the non-fiction world.

Over the last few months, the most entertaining movies I've seen--and I try to catch all new movies available in local theaters that are worth a damn after filtering for premises of interest--were Their Finest and, somewhat surprisingly, Kong: Skull Island.

I've seen the first three Pirates of the Caribbean movies around 60 times combined on DVD, in a previous chapter of my life, so I was very conflicted over if I should see Pirates 5 after the wreckage that was #4. The consensus is that "it's better than the last one", but that's a really low bar. After digging a little deeper, I decided on a hard pass. I don't want to encourage this kind of sequel swill. I'm of a similar opinion on the next Star Wars movie, an outlook I'll have difficulty reversing closer to release since apparently I can't trust critic or audience consensus there.

For anime, I did actually see Your Name. in theater with English dub, something I didn't think would happen at all. It's a 6/10, or "Fine" on MAL which is how I've decided to rate shows over there (i.e., 5 - Average, 6 - Fine, 7 - Good, 8 - Very Good, 9 - Great, 10 - Masterpiece). Decent, but I found too many scenes easily predictable once I had an inkling of what they were about (that means I thought it was formulaic). I also watched The Garden of Sinners movie series (a.k.a. Kara no Kyoukai) most recently. I thought the third movie was the best, worth an 8, and the others ranged from 6 to 7. The series was held back by its cryptic jargon, which probably resulted from a combination of concepts too difficult for fan translators and poor scripting.

Wonder Woman seems to have reviewed very well. Seems like it comes out on June 2... and today is June 2. Other circumstances may be conspiring for us to see it today or soon.

A friend of mine is a big Alien fan. He hated Prometheus for lore reasons but enjoyed Alien: Covenant quite a bit ("Alien: Cuntenant gets a 9/10 from me. :D"). Having seen Life too recently and being utterly disgusted with it, my horror movie quota was still too full to a find a fuck to give for another horror movie so soon.


10 Things You Didn't Know About Pennywise

yeah...maybe i didn't need sleep tonight after all.

saw this movie when i was younger and it has forever left me...with a phobia towards clowns. i can stand it enough to watch a video like this but *sigh* suffice it to say, my phobia regarding being afraid of the dark pales in comparison to this one.

if just seeing the image of pennywise in his more tame clown form is enough to have me shaking slightly... i'd really rather avoid being near any clown if at all possible.

IT is not a movie i would ever want to let kids see. just thinking about it... *shudder*

That's what happens when you watch horror movies as a kid. It either hardens you or breaks you, and it sounds like you broke. They have an age restriction for a reason.
